Having reaffirmed that Stadia remains "alive and well", Google's just announced their cloud streaming platform is coming to Chromecast on June 23. Announcing this'll be the "first version" of this, they also revealed Stadia's coming to "compatible Android TV OS devices" on the same date.
As part of this, Google's revealed these devices are formally supported.
- Chromecast with Google TV
- Hisense® Android Smart TVs (U7G, U8G, U9G)
- Nvidia® Shield TV
- Nvidia® Shield TV Pro
- Onn™ FHD Streaming Stick and UHD Streaming Device
- Philips® 8215, 8505, and OLED 935/805 Series Android TVs
- Xiaomi® MIBOX3 and MIBOX4
Google Stadia Launches For Chromecast On June 23
If you don't have any of these devices, Google revealed the ability to opt-in for "experimental support", confirming:
As for Android TV OS devices not on this list, you can opt into experimental support to play Stadia. While this feature is still in development and not every Android TV OS device will work perfectly, you can now try out Stadia and play your favorite games on more screens than ever before.
There's been a lot of doubt about the platform's future in recent months. Having struggled to take off back in 2019, Google recently closed their internal studios last February, focusing primarily on third-party games. While this won't alleviate criticisms about Stadia's library, it's nice to see another gaming service more widely accessible.
